My favorites are Princess Grace, Fabiola, the Duchess of Kent, and the Countess of Wessex. Diana herself was beautiful but the dress a little too crumply and overdone for my taste.

I love Grace's wedding dress but she was a stunning beauty with a perfect figure and I think that her perfect appearance made the dress even better... It fitted her style perfectly. She was a star of cinema after all...
I don't think that it would fit me, for example...

My top 3
1. Maxima
2. Anne Marie
3. Aimee

Honorable mention: Soraya. Her dress might be a bit unrestrained for a wedding, but it would be make a fabulous and dramatic evening gown for a gala or even a costume party.

1. Maxima of the Netherlands
2. Mette-Marit of Norway
3. Fabiola of Belgium (although this photo is not the best one to show her gown)

I agree with Leslie2006 about the high collars chosen by Letizia and Mathilde.... They remind me of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and not in a good way.... Although I would have to agree with EmpressRouge that the prize for the worst dress (possibly ever) goes to Mabel of Orange-Nassau, wife of Prince Friso of the Netherlands.

Mette Marit is my all time favorite. The dress is simple and fits her body so well. The dress is timeless and the fabric is outstanding. Letizia's dress I also liked simply for its embroidery. And it too fits her body so well and the fabric is wonderful.

My favorite is Mette-Marit's. The dress photographed well and fit her like a glove. But I didn't like the flower arrangement she carried.

I liked Grace's dress but I didn't like the headpiece she wore.

I didn't vote, but I like Mßxima and Marie of Denmark's wedding dresses the best.

I particularly do not like the wedding dresses of Princess Grace and Mette-Marit. The latter's was much too simple and I don't even want to talk about her "bouquet". I have never seen the specialty of Princess Grace's gown either.
And, of course, Mabel's wedding dress. It suited her personality (against the stream and she loves attention and the spotlights and such a dress would surely give her that) but I thought it was an ugly dress. I neither liked the color nor the bows.

Get married like a princess,...

Billedbladet has a nice report about wedding dresses inspired by princess wedding dresses:

I had a dream: Let's connect our thoughts together, than we have a mission, let's connect our feelings together, than we have a mood, let's connect our dreams together, than we have a vision and let's connect our mission, our mood and our vision together than we have a perfect life.

That's really cool - although I'm not sure I'd want to marry in a dress I connect so closely with someone else. I think the remake of Margrethe's dress is the one that matches the closest.

Mette-marit of Norway- simple ,elegant
Maxima of the Netherlands- the whole look worked well
Anita of the Netherlands- very pretty
Aimee of the Netherlands- she looked so cute
and of course Grace of Monaco

I liked Leticia's as well i just think the collar should have been a little lower.

My list

Top 3:
Mette-Marit of Norway (all time high)
Margrethe of Denmark
Silvia of Sweden

All three elegant, well fitting and well adapted to the tiara and veil worn.

Second best:

Mathilde of Belgium
Letizia of Spain
Christina of Sweden
Fabiola of Belgium

Mary of Denmark (reminded me of a refracted napkin)
Mabel of the Netherlands (the bows)
Grace of Monaco (her headgear did not fit her at all)

All time low:

Diana of Great Britain (crumpled overdone wedding cake)
Dux femina facti - Behind the deed was a woman

Princess Grace
Queen Fabiola
Princess Maxima

That photo does not do Fabiola justice..her gown was cut and executed so perfectly it looks like it was sewn onto her body in some pictures...and the magnicent ermine lined train(20 feet long!) MUST be seen in full effect.. Great work by Balenciaga...Princess Grace was utter perfection but I agree with the poster who said Grace's overall gorgeousness is what made it work...very few women could have successfully worn a gown like that..Like Fabiola, this photo does not do Maxima's gown justice...the veil alone would have put her over the top! It was simply exquisite.

Honorable mention to Mette-Marit. That gown...the color and well as the veil are the last word in ELEGANCE. I have not seen her look so beautiful EVER.

Mathilde of Belgium and Letizia of Spain are beautiful women, but I didn't like their wedding attire AT ALL! Those pointy collars look like the Wicked Queen in Snow White, as someone else has already pointed out. Letizia's stunning veil saved her from being a disaster, and Mathilde's angelic radiant face saved HER, in my opinion!

I'm afraid I don't like wedding dresses and out of these photos the only passable wedding dress was worn by Mary.
